Final Fantasy: Echoes of Time dated

14 new screens inside ahead of March release

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time will be released in Europe on March 27 for Wii and DS.


Billed by Square Enix as the first "cross-platform multiplayer adventure" for DS and Wii, it lets 2-4 Wii/DS players partake in the adventure together via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and Wireless Communication services.

Here's the story blurb on what Square's calling "the most accessible take" on the Final Fantasy universe yet:

"A triumphant return from a monster-infested forest marks the completion of the 16-year-old hero's coming-of-age ceremony. However, the hero's joy is short-lived as a young village girl is found to be afflicted by a mysterious illness known as 'crystal sickness'. Determined to obtain the cure, the hero steps out of the secluded village for the first time, only to discover a world in which crystals are merely artefacts of the past and no longer exist."
